Wonderful--and Finn still takes the opportunity to get a nasty shot in at those whom he despises.

I'm so moved by Finn's valuable contribution here, i think i'll go wash my hair.

@Finn dAbuzz,

I have tried to focus on the issue rather than the emotion, but sometimes I've not been successful. Sometimes I've gone for the throats of my opponents, and, frankly, I've enjoyed it when I have.

Bottom line is that I very much enjoy discussing topics with the vast majority of you, and I will not allow A2K mosquitoes to drive me away.


You wouldn't get a bad response from people if you didn't act like such a douche-bag with such frequency. There's a reason why there are many posters on the right-wing who I will never insult and never give a hard time to; it is because they conduct themselves in a manner befitting people who are looking for rational conversation.

You do not, and so you get what you are looking for. You make inflammatory posts and get inflamed responses. What did you expect to happen? Maybe on other subjects you are a voice of reason, but in the realm of Politics, you display the worst side of yourself. You ought to change that if you want to have better interactions with people here.

Here's what one of our moderate posters, Merry Andrew, had to say on one of the last threads you started:

Quote:
Y'know, one wonders why Finn even posted this. Black's screed is so over-the-top, filled with invective, hyperbole and plain misstatements of fact that it doesn't seem possible that any reasonable person could take it seriously. So, granting that Finn can at times be quite reasonable, what was the purpose of posting this arrant nonsense?


What was the purpose? To start arguments with left-wingers. Nothing in that piece was intended to lead to a greater discussion, it was basically a long insult towards the president.

The sad thing is that you feel compelled to bitch to the forum like a little baby when you get what you want. And you get sympathy from those who don't really interact with the 'political' side of you very much, and that makes you feel all cozy about staying. It's something I would expect out of a 14 year old girl, not a grown man.

Take some responsibility for your behavior. There may be some good reason for insulting other people, but your having guessed that someone is not looking for rational conversation is not one of them.

Your conduct is a reflection upon you, not Finn. Hopefully most a2k'ers are sophisticated enough that they will not be buying your BS.

I own my behavior and apologize for nothing. I ask nobody for forgiveness nor blame anyone for their responses to my posts.

I make my own judgements as to what is a good reason to say something, and I don't self-censor. It would be a waste of my time to come on A2K and then self-censor what I actually think.

I'm sure your desire to respond to my post is because we have gone around the bend a few times, but I don't feel bad when I'm criticized by someone who argues in favor of Rape and male domination over women with frequency.

We can only get to know the parts of people which they choose to put forth on A2K; we don't know all the little things that people do in life which make them good or bad. I personally wouldn't be proud to have forwarded the opinions which you have chosen to forward. But, you know this already, so I won't clog the thread with a lecture.

Conducting yourself with civility would not be a waste of your time, but your posting history indicates that you believe otherwise. Have you learned nothing from our Iraq experience? Namely that he who gets down into the mud is as guilty of bad behavior as is the one who was there first. We as a nation claim to be about "doing what needs to be done" just as you do, which is how we got into the deception used to sell the war and torture. Terrorists are and Saddam was scum, but the civilized don't become scum to confront them. The uncivilized step into the mud , all the while claiming "had too".

You still don't get it. I say nothing that I 'have to.' I say things because I want to say them. I post on A2K entirely for my own gratification, not to build a 'community' or find a bunch of people to nod and agree with me; and that is not compatible with self-censorship.

I doubt that's true. What's more likely true is he politely warned you to not let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.

Don't forget, he's a lying piece of **** as well. And most of us A2Kers don't buy his BS for a second.

that is very interesting, considering that I have almost 5k posts here, and have never been caught in a lie. As for the rest...who knows, perhaps you are not as smart as I am so you can't tell reality from BS as well as I can. I don't know you, but at least I am not dumb enough to pretend that I do.

It is all about logic and evidence, not personalities. Far too many around here have lost their way.

Fortunately, some posters have that logic.

They can see that you are a better man than I am, as you once pretended..

With my flawed logic, I consider that a lie..

You were caught in a lie four posts ago by Ticomaya, fer chrissakes!

You are a lying piece of ****, everyone here knows it, and that's that.

YOU are delusional if you think that was "catching a lie" He interprets Roberts words differently than I do, but my interpretation is completely supportable by the definition of the words Robert used. We have not even so much as looked at any of the text and argued about it, and yet you have me as guilty of lieing. This lack of common courtesy and fairness that you are currently showing towards me is exactly the kind of thing that Finn and others complain is ruining the a2k experience.

@hawkeye10,
Your judgment about my acting is subject to caution, as it's only your opinion which you have seen is not widely shared.

But, I'm used to human pretenses, especially yours, and I think they don't carry much weight.

I caught you, more than once, in contradictory statements, as if you were corralled.

Last but not least, if being a good person is being like you, no thanks, I prefer to be a bad man...

Because I've seen you lie about interactions you've (not) had with Robert several times before, ya lying piece of ****. I don't even need to see the text to know you're a lying piece of **** and that you're lying right now.

So where is this text you speak of, ya lying piece of ****? Seems it would be easy to prove me wrong if you wanted to, ya lying piece of ****. But you won't, because, as everyone on this site knows, you're a lying piece of ****.

Did I mention that you're a lying piece of ****? Now show us all that I'm wrong, and present your evidence that Robert has asked you to leave. Ya lying piece of ****.
